|Message:||Dear family, I wanted to express my deepest sympathy and concern for you and share with you that death isnít the end. Jesus demonstrated this when he resurrected Lazarus who was already buried for four days when he was on earth. The account recorded in John 11 relates that to those who were with him when he learned the news, Jesus said: ďLazarus has falling asleep and I am going to awaken himĒ. Just as he stated, the account also reveals that Jesus asked Lazarusí relatives to take him to the grave where Lazarus was buried and when he got there, he called Lazarus who came out like he was never dead. What Jesus did then was a preview of what heíll soon do for mankind as king of Jehovahís Heavenly Kingdom. (Daniel 7: 13and 14); (Isaiah 9:6 and 7). Which is why he promises in John 5: 28 that there will come a time when all in the grave will hear his voice and come out. Imagine being able to reunite with your resurrected Loree! This is not mere dream. Itís a guaranteed promise that will soon be fulfilled here on earth, which will become a paradise where the righteous will reunite with their resurrected loved ones and live a life free of all the problems we know today forever and ever (Psalms 37: 29). To learn how to be counted among them, please heed the counsel found in John 17: 3 by studying the Bible with the Witnesses|
